2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)

Review

My wife and I had to decide between the the C55, the M3, and the new Corvette. The C55 was clearly the best of the three. The Corvette is cheaper, but it isn't nearly as safe as either the BMW or the Benz. The key difference between the C55 and the M3 is the interior. One look inside of an M3, and you will know that the car is built for performance. The C55 is built for performance and for luxurious comfort. For just $1,000 more than an M3, the C55 offers a hand-made engine, Nav system, single disc CD player with a 6-disc changer in the glove box, heated seats, four doors, and much, much more. The C55 is really an outstanding deal for the money it costs.

Favorite Features

The AMG trim and the hand-built engine. However, unlike the other C- class models, Mercedes dealers typically order C55s fully loaded. Every option and accessory is worth the money. It's a luxury car with an engine that can beat nearly every car on the road.

Suggested Improvements

Only small suggestions. The C55 could use, as options, a tire pressure monitor and a keyless go device. The tire pressure monitor is the one useful "toy" the 2005 Corvette had that the C55 is lacking. Other than that, this car has been perfect.
